A project revived

Far too long ago I had an idea to create a Turkish themed list for Warlord Games’ fun weird war member of the Bolt Action family, Konflikt 47. The models have been purchased and languishing in the backlog ever since. Well, I uncovered them the other day and thought I either needed to get started or move them on. Only WIP today, a public statement of intent to get some painting done! It wasn’t overly successful last time, but at least assembly has begun.

If you want painted minis I suggest having a look at the rather fun round-up of the Neglected But Not Forgotten challenge over at Anne’s Immaterium. Well worth a look for all the ace talent on show.

No weird stuff yet. I have concentrated on the Turkish army units and their supporting German troops.

WWI Ottoman Turks with a few tweaks like panzerfausts; these will be inexperienced/second line troops
Gebirgsj├Ąger, who will take the role of Axis troops embedded with the Turkish force
One of the Turkish squads, basically grenadiers with fezzes. I have shaved off the tassel and eagle to match the military dress from the 1920s Turkish Army
Squad number two, with an LMG
Sniper team (the turban is not right, being Sikh, I’m sure he has a story tell)
An anti-tank rifle, which in K-47 can be used in the sniper role to hunt light armour and walkers
Kit-based irregular cavalry.

I have also created a draft home brew list for Turkey. It is based on the German list, but with additions motivated by the lists for Hungary and Bulgaria. More on that later. It isn’t quite ready to be released into the wild yet.

The officers including a German liaison officer

A start. More assembly yet, as I need to put together a couple of vehicles. And then the paint, of course.
